Catch and effort data is used to monitor CCAMLR fisheries and to forecast fishery closures.
Catch and effort data is submitted to the Secretariat by Flag Sates, or their vessels, using the CCAMLR Data Form CEfv2017 for finfish fisheries or the CCAMLR Data Form CEkv2017 for krill fisheries. Catch and Effort Data Submission Instructions (366.31 KB) for completing these forms have be developed.
Catch and effort data is submitted at different reporting periods depending on the conservation measure (CM) that applies to a fishery and the status of the fishery in relation to its catch limit.
Daily catch and effort data
Daily catch and effort data is submitted in accordance with Conservation Measure 23-07 and is required for all exploratory toothfish fisheries.
5-day catch and effort data
5-day catch and effort data is submitted in accordance with Conservation Measure 23-01 and is required for established toothfish and icefish fisheries (except Division 58.5.2), established krill fisheries when krill catches exceed 10–80% of their respective limits (see monthly catch and effort reporting) and during research fishing undertaken in accordance with Conservation Measure 24-01.
10-day catch and effort data
Monthly catch and effort data
Monthly catch and effort data is submitted in accordance with Conservation Measure 23-03 and Conservation Measure 23-06 for established krill fisheries in Subareas 48.1, 48.2, 48.3 and 48.4 and Divisions 58.4.1 and 58.4.2 when the total catch is less than 50–80% of the trigger level or 10% of the trigger level in Subarea 48.1 (CCAMLR-XXXIII, paragraphs 5.5).
